The G-shaped kitchen layout is a version of the U-shaped kitchen layout, with the same amount of counter space and storage options that surround the cook on three sides. However, the G-shaped kitchen floor plan design includes a peninsula or partial fourth wall of additional cabinets. Depending on the size of the kitchen, G-shaped kitchens can seem cramped. To make the room feel more spacious, open up the wall in a nearby room and create a pass-through or breakfast bar for the family.
This kitchen floor plan is ideal for large kitchens, and provides the most cabinet storage solutions:
- Adding a short return on the open side of a U-shaped layout minimizes traffic flow in and out of the work zone.
- There are plenty of places to set up specialized zones.
- This layout features the most corner base cabinets. Use corner storage solutions in your design plan to maximize utility in these awkward spaces.
- Usually best for larger kitchens. (The narrower entrance into the work zone can make a cook feel claustrophobic.)
